When you're in Leavenworth you feel like you're in a quaint Bavarian village in the Netherlands. Which is just what this happy town was going for when it had to reinvent itself back in the 60's during economic trouble. With a new façade of Bavarian charm, Leavenworth has drawn millions of visitors from around the world since then. The towering mountains surrounding Leavenworth are the backdrop to a plethora of outdoor adventures such as camping, hiking, biking, white water rafting, skiing and much more.
You'll enjoy perusing the picturesque downtown stores. The shops in Leavenworth have primarily been souvenirs for many years. But lately a slew of chic boutiques, upscale restaurants, and tasting wine bars have popped up taking advantage of a captured audience.
Our favorite places to shop, dine, and wine taste are just a 25 minute ride from Wenatchee.
